We stayed in a superior twin tor 1 night on a half-board basis and don't regret this one bit. The surroundings were a delight and we enjoying taking time to explore. The evening meal was excellent, as in another Parador hotel in which we stayed earlier in our holiday. I am only giving this 4 stars, however, due to our... More

Stayed for only one night on the amigos gastronomic package. Very good value.. We wished we had stayed longer. We had an extremely pleasant and spacious room even though it was considered standard. The meals were very good and the staff helpful and attentive

Our first stay at this parador which is very impressive, the building and the plaza in front of it. Parking was free and around the back of the hotel with a manned entrance. Rooms are modernised (we had a superior room) with huge beds and Spanish dark furnishings. Ours had an additional side room which we didn't use. Take a... More

The Paradors are a real mixed bunch, but what they have in common is the way that they are run and the sad truth that none of them are particularly well-kept. This Parador is at the top end in category, with a stunning entrance and absolutely gorgeous public/interior spaces. The rooms are, as we have found at almost all Paradors,... More

We stayed 4 nights in this Parador. Magnificent building, nice room, friendly staff. Great experience.We have plans to visit as many Paradores as possible. We just pick one, checking the Paradors website. We do not like the Paradores ' modern style'. We love the old buildings.

Wonderful building, one of the best Paradors we stayed in on our three week road trip. Junior suite, v comfy bed and large living room overlooking the main square. Recommend the free tour of the hotel done each morning (even though it is in Spanish, at least you get shown where the most interesting parts of the hotel are. Nice... More

5 state position - 3 star hotel. Poor breakfast for English - croissant stale, no quality yoghurt, no muesli. I purchase croissant in the town and they were far better than those served at the parador

Wow what a fabulous historic building, well that is the exterior and the formal entrance to the Parador. As amigos we booked a two night package including breakfast for 111E per night for a standard room. Well standard room says it all. What a disappointment. The building where the hundred or so standard rooms are situated looks like a 1970's... More

I went to the Parador with group of 40 for lunch. The surroundings and the quality of food was first class. The lunch was 31 euros per head for 4 courses, plus wine, water and coffee. Great value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostal de San Marcos is one of the most extraordinary historic hotels on the Old Continent. Construction of the building was begun in the 16th century, together with the bridge across the River Bernesga in the outskirts of León. It was built to house the peninsula's western headquarters for the Military Order of Saint James. The project was financed by King Ferdinand the Catholic. The magnificent hotel is a museum of stately function rooms, with a spectacular cloister and chapter house; spacious, elegant guest rooms; a library; and a wonderful restaurant that offers beautifully prepared traditional cuisine. ... more   less
